Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said Tuesday that Jordan has no intention of establishing bilateral relations with Hamas, and that any upcoming visit by Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal to Amman would be "a quick one," according to Dubai-based news website Al Moheet.
The Jordanian foreign minister, who returned to Amman after a visit to the West Bank on Monday, said Jordan was committed to supporting the Palestinian Authority and the issue of a Palestinian state.
"There are no bilateral relations with Hamas. Our relations are with the Palestinian Authority," Judeh said on Jordanian television.
The Jordanian Foreign Ministry said Monday that officials had set no date for Mashaal to visit Jordan.
